What is the course about?
In this course you will learn more in-depth ways to apply the main 3D modelling commands on Rhino. Rhino is a software used for computer-aided design (CAD). This is a tool for designing and making that is relevant to any creative practitioner or an individual that wishes to learn more about 3D modelling and 3D printing. By the end of the course, you will take home with you a 3D print of your own design printed on site at City Lit.
What will we cover?
• Drawing and manipulating curves and surfaces using various commands such as Circle, ExtrudeCr, BooleanUnion,
Explode and Rebuild.
• Software terminology such as CPlane, NURBS, STL and slicer.
• 3D printing terminology such as additive manufacturing, CAD, CAM, prototyping and FDM.
What will I achieve?
By the end of this course you should be able to...
•Recognise and use Rhino to design a 3D model for 3D printing.
• Manipulate curves and solids using various commands including Circle, ExtrudeCr and
BooleanUnion, Explode and Rebuild.
• Recognise and use software and 3D printing terminology.
What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?
This course is suited to those with some prior knowledge of design and/or making, however this is not
essential. You should be confident with simple mathematics and accurate measurements, and have basic
experience of using a computer. You do not need to have used Rhino or other CAD software’s before. This course is also suitable for those who have attended Rhino courses at City Lit before and want a refresher on the main Rhino commands.
How will I be taught, and will there be any work outside the class?
Through practical demonstrations, 3D modelling exercises and digital handouts. Group discussions and feedback are encouraged.
Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring?
All materials are included. You are advised to bring a USB to save your work on and pen and paper to make notes.
